Our Charity Partner

The Dental House Practice is delighted to confirm that its charity partner for 2020 is Love, Jasmine.

Love, Jasmine is a local charity, established by Rob and Kathy Lapsley in 2016 – following the tragic death of their daughter, Jasmine, in August 2014.

They set up the charity to support other families who had lost a child.  Jasmine’s death meant that they experienced first-hand what support services were and were not available.  They then set out to improve the support that was available to bereaved families in the Merseyside area.

​Love, Jasmine provides bereavement support to families who have a lost a child of any age from 20 weeks gestation to adulthood.  They take a holistic approach to the support they provide families, as they understand that everyone deals with their grief and trauma in their own way.  They provide:

  • ​Emotional – One to one counselling, couples counselling, family group work, support groups and coffee mornings.
  • Practical – Advice, signposting, guidance and advocacy.
  • ​Self-care – Complimentary therapies, yoga and meditation.
  • ​Respite Breaks – Short breaks at Jasmine’s Retreat which is in Ribby Hall Village, Lancashire. ​

Charlotte Chan, staff member of The Dental House, states: “’The Love, Jasmine team and services have played a huge part in my husband and I learning to cope with the loss of our daughter Margot. We have received counselling and complimentary therapies, which have helped us grieve and practice self-care. In deciding which charity to support this year, choosing Love, Jasmine was a no brainer. The support they offer can be a lifeline for bereaved families.”

Dr. Stuart Garton, Clinical Director of The Dental House, states: “The Practice has always supported local charities since it opened in 2015. For 2020, the Practice wanted to engage with a local charity and develop a comprehensive programme of events and activities across the whole year – that our staff could get behind, and that could ultimately help make a big impact for the charity itself. When I heard about the excellent work of Love, Jasmine and met Rob, this local charity quickly became a very clear and obvious choice for the Practice to support next year.”

Rob Lapsley, Co-Founder and Director of Love, Jasmine states: “We are absolutely delighted that The Dental House Practice has decided to support Love, Jasmine in 2020. We look forward to working with the team closely across the year – helping us to raise awareness of our work and the support that we can offer to the community”.
